From childhood days of building model airplanes and experimenting with a chemistry set, to a corporate career which frequently involved starting new projects and organizations, creating has been a critical part of my life.
Inspiration comes from flowers - part of being the daughter of a florist, and the island of St. Croix. For over 35 years, I and husband, Steve (a devoted, hard-working supporter of the arts community) have made St. Croix a home. Other things that turn me on artistically include world travels in the US and internationally from Southeast Asia to the Mediterranean. Nearly every creation has a story reflected in the title. As the muses speak I may choose acrylic, graphite or watercolor media, occasionally combining multiple media.
Works have been featured at several juried shows and honored with People's Choice and Judges' Choice Awards. Works are in private collections in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, Canada, Denmark, Iceland and St. Croix USVI. I am a featured artist at the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts.
